Women and Girls in the Social Environment: Behavioral Perspectives examines women's behavior in the context of social stages and situations occurring over the course of a lifetime. From childhood to old age, women react differently than men do when faced with stressful or life-changing events and environments. This book also shows that differences within the female gender such as sexual orientation, race, ecological situation, age, and the presence (or absence) of children can also affect behavior.

Women and Girls in the Social Environment is the first collection focusing solely on women's behavior using a combination of rich narratives and quantitative inquiries. This volume shows how important it is to validate female behavior as a real issue in social work to effectively counsel women. This book illuminates these behaviors so better treatment or prevention programs can be designed for the future.

Women and Girls in the Social Environment examines: differences in social support reported by adolescent boys and girls after the death of a friend or family member how alcohol and other drug (AOD) problems affect a woman's ability to protect her children from victimization trauma the differences in neighborhoods that exist for black and white childbearing women in New York City and each of its boroughs, specifically addressing issues of oppression and social inequality research gathered from the success stories of "welfare mothers" who escaped poverty by methods other than marriage or cohabitation a study of low-income women from two races African-American and European-American to determine the influence of "personality hardiness" in moderating the stress-illness relationship domestic violence among Native American women and its implications for social work practice with them empowerment theory for older clients its successes and limitations when applied to advanced age and much more! Women and Girls in the Social Environment contains specialized studies that when seen together offer an intriguing picture of the nature of women. These studies are also important because they refer to current issues in social work and counseling that should be addressed. With charts, tables, references, and rich personal narratives, this volume contains vital information to further your knowledge of women's behavior in the context of the social environment.
